Medora superintendent contract extended


Medora’s part-time superintendent has received a contract extension.

During a meeting earlier this week, Medora Community Schools board of trustees unanimously approved Roger Bane’s three-year contract. He will work 130 days and be paid $50,000 each year.

This was a public meeting where anyone could voice his or her opinion on the contract, but no one from the community was at the meeting.

Bane’s contract is effective Jan. 1.

In August, Bane was hired as part-time interim superintendent after trustees dismissed Tom Judd, who was part-time superintendent for three years. Shortly after, trustees approved paying Bane $300 per day for his work.

Bane resigned as superintendent of Brownstown Central Community School Corp. in May 2013. He began with that corporation as an assistant principal at Brownstown Central High School in 1996. He later was principal of that school before moving up to superintendent in 2004.

Before his stint at Brownstown, Bane taught briefly at Medora.

He is a 1984 graduate of Brownstown Central High School.
